Still tatting and more crosses

Still busy tatting crosses. For some reason I felt the need to do a purple only one(Mary Konior's Large Cross), and the second was one that I made a mistake and joined a picot that I wasn't supposed to so I let it sit until yesterday when I decided I could make it work by adding a butterfly to join the other picot opposite the mistake and then join to the mistake also and I just looks like it should be there(Mary Konior's Small Cross). I am learning that butterflies are great mistake covers and they make a nice addition to the project(at least for the bookmarks so far).

The first is done in Lizbeth Lilac Dk size 40, and the second is done in Lizbeth Fruit Fizz and Lilac Dk. size 40 also.
As for the funny look of the background....it's my "professional" mistake-closing the copier lid while scanning, but I liked the outcome so I kept it. :)

Both crosses are pretty, and I like your idea of using a butterfly to cover up a mistake!

Your crosses are wonderful! (I love the purple!) And how inventive to cover the error with a butterfly! You're right--it does look likes it's supposed to be there.

Strikingly beautiful!

Suppose you share your mistakes just with us (other tatters), because there is no need to do so with anyone else: nobody notices! Crosses are lovely. Funny how you attached the tail on the purple one, I would have taken the other side. This shows how all our work has its own personal touch! Nice work! Ingrid

Both are pretty and umm I did your trick for a cross I gave to a friend of mine. I messed up on a join and didnt realize it till I was well on into the pattern. So I made a simple flower and put it right on the mistake. She loved the cross. :)
